…if i don’t blog, then you don’t visit. thus explains the low visitor’s number :)
not much to report…
waiting for furnace man to come this evening (as they cancelled at 11:15 the morning I took off from work to stay home & wait for them)
left work early enough to be home in the daylight – amazing!
work is ok…
personal project is kindof on hold – as I’m the sort of someone who appreciates science vs. cookie-cutter-structure. it’s frustrating, but that’s to be expected… overall, it’s a frustrating project.
two dear friends are pregnant! and will be expecting this summer. how exciting – found out the same day (friends are in different circles) perhaps i should go out and get me a man (better half – is that what we decided?)… actually, they’re not necessarily needed long-term, but i think it’s better that way…at least for me)
um, let’s see… my boss observed me last week, and it didn’t go well (i wasn’t pleased) hopefully will get the written feedback in the near future. i appreciate constructive feedback very much.
boy left me an email message late last night… said he’d call tonight… i’m looking forward to it. i think we should see each other again. he’s really nice, and is someone i’d like to know more about. i’m such a girl, i think like a girl… i’m gathering it’s too soon to start thinking future-related thoughts, and making decisions based on those future-related thoughts when i don’t even know this guy very well… although the bit i do know makes me 1) not want to stomp on his heart and 2) not want to give up my dream of a man who will take the role of jumping on the ladder every so often to kill the medium-sized spider b/c I’m a girl and spiders are scary. i’m looking for someone to shoulder that with me – i’m tired of being strong and independent all the time… will explain more if/as necessary [note: i must remember to head on over to deeleea’s blog to see how her business-date went…has it happened? inquiring minds want to know]
*ah, just checked. the clayton’s date is on sunday… good luck deeleea!*
there’s also boy #2, whom i have not met. we’re planning to speak via phone this weekend… and if things go well, and we continue to establish rapport, i would like to meet him sometime in March. road trip anyone?! we’ll see how it goes.
taxes are due April 15th over here… must make a committment this weekend to 1) go through accumulated mail on mail table… since August (arugh!) 2) go through accumulated mail/papers from the move (yes, i actually dumped piles of mail into storage bins… to go through at a later date, post-move. it’s insane. not very efficient, i know… could have won the lottery and not even know!)
i’m planning to do my taxes myself this year. i feel like i’ve got so many small nuances (e.g., grad classes this past summer, currently owning two homes, etc.) there are lots of little factors… I’ll buy another software program and do it myself. let’s see: I will COMMIT to getting them (taxes) done by mid-March. Let’s see how I do… perhaps I could use boy #2 as incentive. An if/then scenario. If my taxes are done my MARCH 15th, then I can plan a trip to meet boy #2. who knows – at this rate, by then there may be boy #7!
must schedule dr visit to get a few things crossed off my list-of-things-to-do.
off to go wait by the window for furnace man… it’s a beautiful and cold night – can’t wait for spring!
